    I love my IPad! My DIL is going to set it up for me for FaceTime. I use it for quiltingboard( can't post pictures yet), Google, YouTube and lots of neat games. I've only been using it for about 6 months and have only scratched the surface of what it can do.

    I did buy the newest version of the Ipad and I love it too!! In fact, I just had face time with my dear friend in Arizona. We do that about once a week in addition to talking on the phone. It's like having a mini computer at my fingertips.

    I love mine! My son and daughter in law moved to Germany the first of the summer and we facetime. I can see their home and my furry grandchildren and feels like they are just down the street. Lots of great apps for quilting, news, and games to keep my mind sharp (LOL).

    I've thought about it but my one draw back is that normally when I use my pc its to design or I'm paying bills online. I have a netbook and hate looking at the small screen so I'm not sure I'd like it. I bought a large 17in laptop when I started designing for embroidery. that being said, people here have them at work, our new director made sure all of the managers have one. It is good that after hours or on weekends if we have to page someone when the systems go down; all of the mangagers can check in and see what is going on. I love my Color Nook and love reading and doing alot of things with it. I have the iPhone 4S and still can't say that I love it and I don't use Facetime but it is cool and if my daughter got an iPhone I'd probably use it then to at least see the kids when she calls. I do see them most everyday but she'll call and tell me about something they are doing then or my 18mo will go around the house calling out for her GiGi and she'll call so that I can talk to them. Who knows, right now I can't see buying one but in the future, maybe. I just don't want to pay another bill for the on the go access to the web.

    I've had my iPad for about 10 months and love it. Early in the summer I was having problems with tennis elbow and it was great to read books when I couldn't hold a needle and sew or rotary cut my fabric. It is also great to sit in the living room with the rest of family and check e-mails or QB when watching TV and not feel like I am isolated because the computer is in another room. I also like being able to listen to music, mine and IHeart Radio. Husband laughs at me when I try to do "touch" screen on the computer because that is what you do with iPad Granddaughter (age 3) also loves to play games and use the photo booth option to take funny pictures of herself and grandpa. Would definitely get another if something happened to this one. When I got mine I got a keyboard case that I like to use (works with bluetooth) so I don't have to touch the screen to type. Good luck on your search and decision.

    An iPad will connect via any existing wifi. If you have wifi in your house, it will connect to that without any additional charge. It can also connect to free public wifi hotspots, such as ones you can find at coffee shops and bookstores. You only incur additional charges if you get the iPad with 3G or 4G - it connects via the cell phone network, so you have to pay for THAT.

    My dh is retired Air Force and I wish they had "invented" the ipad while we were stationed in Japan and then we lived in Alaska for 14. How wonderful it would have been to be able to "see" our family and friends that way.
